Sir Ken Robinson is a world renowned leader in educational development and creativity. He is an internationally recognized speaker and prize winning author. His thought provoking presentation entitled ‘Do Schools Kill Creativity?’ is presented here through illustrations.

You might already be familiar with this moving talk on the role of creativity in the classroom given at the TED Conference in 2006 by Sir Ken Robinson. In this talk, Robinson very poignantly describes how pupils ‘lose’ creativity over the course of their years at school. This version of the talk, illustrated by RSA, reminds us all of the importance of developing a wide variety of skills in class, not just academic ones.

We hope you enjoy this short animated film and thought provoking ideas as much as we did.
